The west bedroom in my 3-bed penthouse apartment. Penthouse because it’s the entire top floor, not because there's a helipad and a pool. :) This is Brooklyn. But I think you’ll like it for the reasons I do: five trains within a 5-min walk, a rooftop facing Manhattan, live music everywhere, late-night restaurants, McCarren park nearby and the atmosphere of a real neighborhood. After seven years (five as a host), I still love it. You will too!
“Martin’s place is a great place for people who want easy access to Manhattan but that Brooklyn experience that defines NYC. It is only two stops outside of the city and the subway station is less than five minutes away. The space is clean and modern with artistic touches. Checkin was easy and I had everything I needed to enjoy my stay. Would definitely recommend Martin’s place to anyone visiting the city.”

“Clean and minimalist apartment with friendly host! My girlfriend and I visited NYC for 3 nights. Although we did not cross paths with John, he checked in regularly to make sure all was well. The space is nicely decorated and very tidy! We loved the bed - EXTREMELY comfortable mattress and sheets. The kitchen area is small but John has an espresso machine with top notch coffee. This isn’t Folger’s folks! John has excellent taste. Train station is a very short walk from the apartment, with several great places to grab a bite in the neighborhood. Recommend Bagock’s - the donuts are freshly made on order and place is not crowded. A note for light sleepers, be aware this is a very small apartment building with old wall construction. Not the paradigm of insulation. You will hear creaks, footsteps in the hallway, and faint chatter occasionally downstairs. However, this comes with the territory, and the level of noise did not exceed my expectation for an apartment in NYC. The neighborhood and traffic noise during our stay was otherwise very minimal. Apartment is on a low key street. John provides a pair of ear plugs in the room, just in case. Overall, small but clean space with a convenient location in Brooklyn. Presents a great value for budget-minded Airbnbers looking for a short stay in the area with a friendly and accommodating host!”
Bright, cozy studio apartment in trendy South Williamsburg with breathtaking views of Manhattan and the East River. New doorman waterfront building w/ elevator, gym, lounge, laundry, and a rooftop terrace. Walking distance to tons of cool, hip restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops. Amazing organic grocery store literally right next door. 10 minute walk to the JMZ subway line and one stop away from Manhattan's Lower East Side.
“We had a great time staying at Jason's place. Easy check in, outstanding location, clean place! It is really nice and roomy! Everything we needed was provided. Convenient to everything in Williamsburg. Short walk to Marcy station to get anywhere you want to go by subway. It is also a great location to just set out and walk around town. Location is quiet for the City and really nice and safe. There is a market in the front of the building that is basically a full service grocery store. Super convenient. The view from the place is out of this world...literally amazing...I probably spent too much time just taking it all in! We were there for the 4th of July fireworks and sat by the windows and enjoyed the show. I highly recommend staying here anytime of the year! Great deal and great place! Thank you!”
